2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Château de Beaucastel

2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Château de Beaucastel

One of the best examples made. Crunchy apples and peach skin, and wild field herbs. Green olives and anise. And a sense of brooding power. Delicious.

Tasting notes

Tasted prior to bottling, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc contains a whopping 80% Roussanne. There's 15% Grenache Blanc, with the balance being a blend of the appellation's various permitted white varieties. It's a rich, full-bodied example of white Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with honeyed notes of pineapple, peach and citrus all playing leading roles, while a touch of anise appears on the lingering finish.
